Nintendo Switch exclusive games list is already looking healthier than that of the Xbox One.

A new report shows that by the end of the year, Nintendo will have released more Switch exclusives than Microsoft has managed in two years for the Xbox One.

The report only includes retail releases, and allows for games that appear on Windows 10 for Xbox One and Wii U for Nintendo Switch.

According to Gamingbolt, Xbox One retail exclusives from 2016 and 2017 are limited to Forza Horizon 3, Gears of War 4, Quantum Break, ReCore, Dead Rising 4, Halo Wars 2, Crackdown 3, Super’s Lucky Tale and Forza Motorsport 7.

The Nintendo Switch, on the other hand, will have seen the following games come to retail by the end of the year: Zelda Breath of the Wild, 1-2-Switch, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, ARMS, Splatoon 2, Mario x Rabbids: Kingdom Battle, Pokken Tournament DX, Super Mario Odyssey, Fire Emblem Warriors and Xenoblade Chronicles 2.

That's ten blockbuster Nintendo Switch releases in nine months, compared to just nine Xbox One retail exclusives in two years.

But even though the list is somewhat damning for Microsoft, it's not all bad news for the Xbox One.

Microsoft's console has far superior third-party game support. With more power under its hood, the Xbox One has welcomed the likes of Call of Duty Infinite Warfare, Battlefield 1, Resident Evil 7 and Mass Effect Andromeda since last autumn.

Likewise, upcoming Xbox One third-party games include Call of Duty WW2, Star Wars Battlefront 2 and Destiny 2.

Equally, the list doesn't include downloadable Xbox One and Windows exclusives like Ori and the Blind Forest or the upcoming Cuphead.

It was previously suggested that first-party exclusives were the reason for Sony's success with the PS4.

Wedbush Securities analyst Michael Pachter believes that while console exclusives aren't the be all and end all, Sony games appeal to more people.

Pachter suggests that the PlayStation 4 has a more varied lineup compared to the Xbox One, which relies too heavily on shooters.
